This seems to be a great tripod and is very versatile in the configurations that you can place the camera in. It has sufficient balance so that you can have a camera facing straight down, like a copy stand, and it won't tip over.…

I LOVE this mount! I was inspired after watching Casey Neistat's youtube channel. I chose this one to be a selfie stick as well as a tripod. It works great as a selfie stick (the bigger version is probably better as it's longer but this one works fine for my sony a6000).

Folds to fit in suite case (carry on) for travel

Looks good Feels good Camera is well supported many ways to use

Camera tripod

Product arrived quickly. It was just what I wanted. Light weight, sturdy and easy to work with. This was a good purchase. Thank you.

how much weight does this camera support?

First of all, this is not a camera but a tripod ;) Then based on the manufacturer description it can support up to 26.5 lbs (12kg). This mean you can pretty much use any camera as long as the base radius is large enough. The whole stability also depends on the conditions and the environment (hill, windy,...). For that purpose you can take advantage of the hook at bottom of the first section to hang a sand bag which will add more stability. Overall I will say that this tripod will support most of the cameras

Will hold a 15lb large format camera?

It should be able to. The tripod is very sturdy and the ball head is a good size.

Best tripod I've ever had. Love the carrying case. Nice and compact

Great Purchase

I am a complete beginner, with an old passed down DSLR camera and I'm using this photograph my collections. It works great and makes me want to get a newer camera. It's a great height, doesn't weigh too much and still holds up my heavy camera.…

Four Stars

Very sturdy for my camera!

Does this allow you to position your camera in an "L" shape? In other words, I'd like to film/take pictures of the process involved in making artwork

Yes, the ball joint has a cut on the side so you can move the camera sideways.

Can you position the camera to shoot the sky?

Yes. You absolutely can!

Perfect mount for Mirrorless cameras.

I LOVE this mount! I was inspired after watching Casey Neistat's youtube channel. I chose this one to be a selfie stick as well as a tripod. It works great as a selfie stick (the bigger version is probably better as it's longer but this one works fine for my sony a6000).

Great accessory to your camera bag

I own 3 of these. This is a great tool to have with you anytime you might need a tripod . I've wrapped it around tree branches,poles, chairs etc...

Great Tripod for my Camera

This camera tripod is very sturdy and well built.…I also really like that the camera can easily be removed from and reattached to the tripod with the secure clip.

will this fit any mirrorless camera, i have a Samsung nx300

It should fit any mirrorless camera (standard tripod screw), but it might struggle if you have a heavy lens. I have a Panasonic GX1. The biggest m43 lens I have is the 45mm macro, and that is OK with this tripod. The biggest lens I have is a Canon 200mm with an FD mount adapter. That lens sort of works on the tripod, but not very well. The thing that actually screws into the camera is a little plate that the tripod snaps on to. Depending on your camera this may need to be removed to get at the battery/sdcard. I can leave the plate on my GX1 all the time and access the battery/sdcard.

Can this be attached and hold my iPhone 7 plus to my Motorcyle to use as a handle bar camera so it can work like a dashboard camera

With the correct mount for your phone probably. I would recommend getting a specific mount for mounting a device like a phone. Plus this would Probably loosen with vibration, and impacts.

Five Stars

Great tripod for small cameras.

My choice for a pocket camera.

Chose this over the smaller "original" size. Am glad I did. I have confidence that it will nicely support my Sony RX100 compact. The size is not an issue. Easily pocketable.

Awesome accessory for your camera!

Cute little tripod that you can take anywhere. Bought as a present for my teen son. Seems to be doing the job. It won't take the place of a full size tripod, but allows much more flexibility in tight places and when you are hiking or camping.

can it hold a canon rebel or a sony nex7?

it is good for small cameras only

Can I put the 3k ballhead on this? and my main camera and lens weighs about 2.03lbs or 950g, will this hold that okay?

I'm not sure, I brought it for my Canon EOS M3 with 18 55 lens and it's perfect for that. I don't know if you can judge if it will be good for you off that but that's all I can tell you.

I like it.

Pretty solid with camera mounted.

So far so good!

At first glance and taking out of the box, and putting camera on, all is good!

Perfect!!! Thanks

It is perfect for my cameras, cellphone, lights!…

But i mean i want to buy this product but i’m not sure if my camera will fit on it... i have a panasonic lumix and i’m wondering if will fit .pls help

I don’t know that particular camera, but I think it is on the small side compared to other cameras. This is good for this tripod because you don’t want a very heavy load on it. If you mean will it attach, then yes. All cameras use a regular thread mount on the bottom where you screw in the plate that locks onto the tripod head.

will this hold a canan rebel t6 18mp camera?

Yes it should without any issues

Makes my job faster

I bought this for the dual center axis for changing camera height very quickly, and it lives up to my expectations.

Nice Features, nice price

It's got a good head that holds the camera well.…

Very nice.

…Sturdy enough for camera with large telephoto lens. very portable.

geekoto tripod, camera tripod for dslr, compact 77’’ - is this tripod ever going to be available???

I got mine a few weeks ago and I'm happy with it.

Will my sony 30 gb hd avchd camcorder work with this tripod or will I need to buy an adapter plate to mount it?

The tripod is compatible with your camera.

Best budget camera stand

Best budget camera stand (Tripod) In this price range.The build is metal yet feel light weight but also very sturdy.I just received mine today and so far loving it so much.

Sturdy camera stand

This is sturdy, lightweight stand that I really like.

CM
Great Camera Tripod!

Very easy to use and love how easily it adjusts to different heights.

Will it work with Canon eos m100 camera?

Absolutely! Most cameras (other than cell phone cameras) have a universal 1/4" threaded hole for standard tripods. Good luck going forward.

can this tripode be used for video cameras

Yes, as long as the camera has a standard threaded socket in the base and is not too large. I use it with a Canon D80 plus zoom lenses without a problem .

3 legs

Works great and looks awesome works great for video camera and my 35mm camera I love looks and works great

Good camera tripod. Worked as expected

Very lightweight. It held my Sony a6500 with an 18-135 lens attached with ease. I appreciate the carrying bag as well.

Great!

love this. matches my camera

How can I tell if this is compatible with my camera (Nikon D3300)?

My understanding is that the quick connect on this tripod fits all cameras.

I have a sony dsc rx-100, so its like a dslr in a point and shoot cybershot body. will the plate and tripod work for this camera? thanks!

The part that fastens to the bottom of camera is a standard machine thread. It fits my Nikon d5300 and also fits my Panasonic fz80 both different types of cameras. You shouldn't have any problem with it working. It has a small handle to tighten up to camera and the side that fasten to camera has a rubber backing. I love the tripod has nice adjustments to get perfect angle for pictures and is very sturdy. The only problem I came across was with my fz80 is being it's lite a Windy day can cause movement but tripod has a hook on bottom to weigh down stand. And with Amazon if it doesn't work out return policy is good.

Does it work for any camera

Yes it will work for a Sony, DSLR, Nikon and lumix too. Any camera

can you use this with a video camera?

It would depend upon the size of the camera. I would extend the legs out a bit to provide more stability. All the best.

What do you mean by mirrorless camera? i have a canon t4i rebel. will it hold that camera. i believe it has a mirror?

I have a t5i and it works great with that camera.

Does this fit a Sony a6000 camera?

Its fits my canon t3i so if the a6000 has the same type of mount (which I assume it does since most cameras do) then it should fit.

Would this work with a mirrorless camera? Specifically, the Fuji x Pro2?

Think it would work with any camera that will mount onto it. Purchased one for my daughter for her birthday and it looks pretty much like a regular camera tripod - as to how the camera mounts onto it. Would think the only issue would be if someone had a large body camera with a bulky telephoto lens then it may be too top heavy for it to support properly. Suggest you check Joby's website for additional details.

Will this work with the sony a 6000 mirrorless camera : i purchased the golby ball & socket slr piece for it already?

Yes it'll work with that camera just fine

Does this model have a magnet? Looking for a quick release set up for my point and shoot camera.

It does have a quick-release. It has a screw to attach to the base of most modern cameras but I don't believe it will work on a cellphone camera.

Does it work to canon eos rebel T5 dslr camera?

I think so. I have a Canon EOS Rebel t6i and it works great. HIGHLY recommend the universal/quick release head though. Makes attatching camera SO much easier.

Will this work for the canon T1i camera?

With a small lens. Larger zooms you will need to have it balanced perfectly, and you won't be confident walking away from it. A quality light weight tripod is usually a better option (but more expensive).

Do I need anything else or if I get this I can just attach my camera in there and start shooting?

As long as the camera you're using has a tripod thread on the bottom, you're good to go!

Camera stand tripod

Great! All stable and easy to use.

Camera tripod

Very nice tripod for the money. Stable, easy to adjust and use. Removable platform is a nice feature

Does this tripod support the camera?

I love this camera tripod. The Camera is locked into place on top of tripod. Very easy to figure out and easy to put on and take off camera.

Will this work with Kodak cameras?

It should. It will work for any camera that has a tripod port (a hole into which something can screw) in its base. Most cameras have one. For things that don’t, like an iPad, you can buy adaptors/holders that do.

camera stand

Camera stand works great. just as described

Good for light wieght camera

I have used this for 30 second exposures. works well

Good for small cameras

Over all a good tripod for what I need to support a light camera or a action camera

Will it work for an SLR camera?

I have used it for a spotting scope and small digital cameras and it has been stable for all.

Can this hold a campark act74 action camera

I have no idea, I do not own that camera. However, the mount clip is extendable and says fits almost all cameras. We have used it on two different cameras with no trouble.

Whether you’re an amateur, a professional photographer, or somewhere in between, the use of a tripod makes a big difference in your photographs. Used for both still and motion photography, they steady the camera to prevent camera movement and ensure images are sharp. They also support the camera so you don’t get tired, which is especially helpful when using long lenses.
Even the most experienced photographers have to worry about shots being ruined by shaky hands. That’s why most use a tripod, which can keep the camera steady or enable fluid motions depending on the model, whenever possible. These are some of the best we’ve found with integrated heads--which means you won’t have to purchase that critical part separately.
